BUFR Viewer BUFR Viewer The BUFR Viewer is a program which is still under development. At the moment, it can read the scatterometer data from Metop-A and ERS2 satellites, the 100km and 25km QuikSat data, the SatWinds data from AQUA and TERRA, and the AMV (air-motion vector) data from EUMETSAT. All this data is available over the EUMETCast dissemination system.
BUFR (Binary Universal Form for the Representation of meteorological data) is Table. Driven Data Representation Forms approved by the World Meteorological Organization. (WMO) for operational use since 1988. Since then, it has been used for the representation and exchange of observational data, as well as for.
It can also read data from the EUMETSAT Archive facility (UMARF) which is available off-line, and includes Meteosat-2 and Meteosat-7 data. If there is sufficient interest, the program may be developed to allow other data to be visualised.
Here is a sample of the ERS2 scatterometer product visualised by the BUFR Viewer, overlaid on a user-image background, and with country boundaries drawn in. You can zoom in to clarify data in a particular region. Zoomed in on hurricane Bertha, July 2008. Bermuda is the tiny island in the north-west corner of the screenshot.

Supported data Here is information about some of the supported data types, and the TelliCast and MSG Data Manager settings required.
The disk locations are given relative to a standard MSG Data Manager installation, where the HRIT images are in Images HRIT. I've also added a note about whether you get this data automatically, or whether you need to request it explicitly from EUMETSAT.
